Its a great news because the main hurdle in treatment of cancer is stopping it to spread in other body parts . Prof Shankar Balasubramanian and colleagues at Cancer Research UK's Cambridge Research Institute says the naturally occurring molecule thiostrepton "clamps" on to a cancer-causing protein called FOXM1, preventing it from working . The scientists have hailed the research and now expect that other molecule could be found out which can mimic thiostreption and could be used as treatment of cancer . Thiostreption is by the way not suitable for treatment of cancer.
